Watching the Bruins’ effort on Thursday night, it didn’t look like they’d come out of Atlanta with anything but a win.
Unfortunately, the missed opportunities cost the B’s as the Thrashers earned the 3-2 shootout victory at Philips Arena. The Bruins still pick up one point on the night, however, and had plenty of positives to take away from the game.
“We played well enough to win it, and we should have won that hockey game,” head coach Claude Julien told NESN’s Naoko Funayama after the game. “I didn’t feel like it should have gone into overtime and unfortunately we didn’t bury our chances. We had some quality chances.”
Hall of Famer and NESN Insider Brian Leetch also had some great things to say about Blake Wheeler‘s performance on the night. To hear what he had to say and more, check out the video above from NESN Daily.
